Colleen started her professional career as a sophomore in college while earning her Bachelor’s in marketing. She was recruited by Vector Marketing, a subsidiary of the Cutco Corporation. Very quickly, Colleen realized she had an important skill- she could sell. Colleen was able to travel through earned incentive trips, hone her sales skills and earn six figures while selling Cutco knives to consumers for 5 years.
In 2013, she made a shift in her business and started to focus on selling Cutco to Realtors as closing gifts. She then achieved Hall of Fame status and sold over $2 million of Cutco, making her one of the best in Cutco history.
As she spent her time with Realtors and affiliates alike, she started to realize there wasn’t a platform that brought the real estate community together across brokerage lines.
In 2017, Baltimore Real Producers was launched. BRP is a platform that curates connections and collaborations between the top producing Realtors and affiliates in central Maryland. This is accomplished primarily via telling stories in our monthly print & digital magazine, hosting regular events, and a private Facebook community.
This year, Baltimore Real Producers received the “Best Content Award”. BRP is Woman and Queer owned.
Currently, Colleen lives in Baltimore City with her wife Jilleien (and Editor-in-Chief of Baltimore Real Producers magazine) with their spoiled puppy Petey. Most of their spare time is spent running their nonprofit Love and Lunches, which serves to feed the homeless and hungry of Baltimore City on a weekly basis.

#SalesLeaders - Sales shouldn't be hard! Do you have a B2B, complex sale? Do your investors/shareholders expect double or triple digit growth?
Is your team struggling to generate qualified leads? Is your team losing large deals? Will you hit your quota?
You are charged with growth. Your team must master the complex sale, shorten your sales cycle and build a sales plan that provides sustainable growth. You must focus on acquisition, retention and growth.
Our clients have seen a 30 to 75% increase in their sales over the time we have worked with them. We have coached and trained sales organizations from start-up to Fortune 100. It's exciting to see them crush their sales goals.

Bill Bice has always been an entrepreneur, starting his first company at age 14, putting on road races with corporate sponsors. At 18, he started ProLaw Software, the first integrated ERP for law firms. After selling the company to Thomson Reuters, Bill became a VC as a founding partner in the Verge Fund, investing in high tech, high growth companies in the Southwest.
One of the core things that Bill has learned in building and investing in companies is that the go-to- market is always the hardest part of growing a business. He got so frustrated in trying to get great marketing for his companies that he decided to tackle the problem. A programmer at heart, Bill founded boomtime, tackling marketing as a technology problem. It turns out that when you follow the data, really good things happen. That’s why boomtime built the world’s first marketing-as-a-service platform: fuse. boomtime’s marketing strategists follow the data: they already know what will work.
